Coleman, our fave traveling companion, has decided that we might need a blender on our next outing. The Road Trip portable device chops and mixes 20-30 pitchers on one full charge of two 6V and 4.5AH rechargeable batteries. With a rubber, non-skid base, push button on/off control, it features an LED battery level indicator.

Available with a one year warranty, it carries a MSRP of $77.49.
